There is no information about minimum requirements on the disc [inlay not available] except that it needs QuickTime 3.0 or later. This software is however clearly not compatible with 68k processors since it is based on Macromedia Director 7.0. Should run fine on MacOS8 since it has been finalized in summer 1999, a few months before the release of MacOS9.

Tested successfully on SheepShaver for MacOSX w/MacOS 9.0.4 albeit sound is slightly choppy.

Surprisingly, the content of this work does not seem to be too much outdated since it covers mostly general principles on the art of winemaking and wine appreciation. The "Wines of the World" chapter is however an exception because huge progresses have been made by wine makers from outside Western Europe over the last twenty years. Even here in Québec, a cold country located north of the 45th parallel, a new generation of wine makers are making small miracles every years.
